Hygge

Hygge 

Even though we have already had the winter solstice, for those of us in the thrust of winter, sometimes it seems that the early darkness won’t get shorter anytime soon. While wintertime can be long, especially January; the plus side is this is the season to get your Hygge on!

Maybe you will just get cozy and embrace all those favorite things that make snuggling up so fun to do.

Some simple and easy ways to get your Hygge on are:

  • have a favorite warm drink
  • put on some soothing or favorite music
  • read a good book or more
  • change up your environment with new scents
  • changing your lighting can change your mood
  • watch a favorite movie
  • take a short nap with a cozy throw
  • wear your favorite soft sweater, even if it is old
  • enjoy a cozy fire or just enjoy some quiet time watching it snow
  • make a favorite family dish

While Hygge can mean different things for each  of us, it all involves enjoying the moment. What are those small things that make a day special for you? How long has it been since you have done your favorite?  By changing up our routines and doing something we enjoy that is cozy and involves the senses, it can help make us less prone to affective seasonal disorder and depression. It can lift our outlook and attitude when we incorporate some time especially for those simple things we enjoy and that gives us little breaks in our day to look forward to. Even at the end of a very busy day, just something short and cozy can make it just right. So what are we waiting for… let’s get our Hygge on!

Encouragement

Be Gentle With Yourself, You're Doing the Best You Can.

Whether you are doing your part by staying in social distancing, working to serve others or taking care of your family; don’t be too hard on yourself. Be sure to do something today just for you. Maybe it’s fixing your favorite warm drink, opening a window for fresh air or listening to the birds sing… just take a moment to slow down and take a breathe. Be gentle with yourself and with those you are with. Turn off any negative self talk while doing what you have to do. You’re Doing the Best You Can! That’s all any of us can ask of someone, including ourselves.  Take care.  terre~

Challenges & Positivity

Staying positive

No matter where you are or what you are having to do at this difficult time, staying positive can be oh so hard when our world has been turned upside down. But you can do it. Just finding one positive or lovely thought a day can help you get through and make such a huge difference in being able to do what needs to be done. Thinking of you all… we will make it through this and hopefully when it is all done, we will be a kinder, peaceful and more loving world. Blessings for strength and courage wherever you are. ~terre
